Jason’s work has been exhibited several times at the Society of Illustrators in New York as well as at the Society of Illustrators West, where he was awarded the silver medal for his portrait of Elvis Costello.  In 2014 he was awarded The Patrick Nagel Award for Excellence for his Painting  “Mother Can you Spare a Room”, for The Wall Street Journal.  His work has also been exhibited in Communication Arts Magazine, American Illustration, Taschen’s Illustration Now! 3, and the book, Digital Art Masters, and Digital Painting techniques by 3D Total.  Most recently he was a keynote speaker for the Adobe Max Conference held in October of 2014.
